Native Americans wore moccasins long before Columbus discovered the land. It's fair to say that moccasins are truly America's first footwear. Completely casual, they define a relaxed and comfortable lifestyle. Since their inception in 1946, Minnetonka Moccasin has shaped the moccasin's place in history. Following World War II, Americans took to the highways to discover its natural beauty. Visiting resorts and souvenir shops, they brought Minnetonka moccasins home to the new American suburbs. They soon became casual classics. Today, Minnetonka is a mainstay of American style. Minnetonka moccasins, fringe, sandals, shearling, boots, slippers, hats and accessories can be seen everywhere...from the streets of New York to the mountains of Colorado. From the Opry in Nashville to the Santa Monica pier and from London to Tokyo. No matter the footprint, all are made with genuine "moccasin soul". It's a simple idea... Classic design that never grows old combined with a natural, free-spirited heritage. Minnetonka Moccasin continues to define casual and comfortable American style. Been here before... be here again. We are told again and again that the world is fast-paced, ever-changing and that busy lives drive people apart. Minnetonka does not believe that is true. It’s not the way human beings are programmed. We create memories and store them within us. Whether it's a sight, a touch, a melody or a place once visited, we find comfort and refuge in memories. No matter how busy, or how distracted, we will always be drawn back to those experiences that frame us. I've been here before... I remember. I relive. It could be a personal experience or a shared experience. It could be something I aspire toward. But, to me, it is real. It can give me a moment of pleasure in a time of stress or motivate me to work harder. It can center me when the world seems disoriented. I will be here again... We seek moments in our lives where we feel relaxed. At peace. We strive to find balance. Because special memories don't live in the past. They are woven within the fabric of who we are. For over 60 years, Minnetonka Moccasin has created products that create those special memories and has become a placeholder for things natural, casual, comfortable and real. And we are honored that you have chosen to share a part of your life with us.
